The first witness in Benjamin Netanyahu’s corruption trial has testified that he was told to make negative stories about the Israeli Prime Minister disappear.
Former Walla Chief Executive Officer, ILAN YESHUA alleged he was also ordered by the news website’s owner, SHAUL ELOVITCH, to post content that attacked NETANYAHU’S political rivals.
Prosecutors said NETANYAHU made regulatory decisions worth hundreds of millions of dollars to ELOVITCH in return for favorable coverage. The prime minister, who is being tried on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust in connection with three separate cases, dismissed the hearing as a “charade” and accused the prosecution of a “coup attempt”
